This is one of the beautiful stallions from the South African Lipizzaners. Myself and a few other photographers were given the opportunity to photograph a training session, and then photograph the horses in their stables.
The light was blindingly harsh in the sun and flat in the shade, leaving us in a bit of a dilemma. I decided to photograph this horse in the shade, and use the gold side of my 5-in-1 reflector to add some drama.
On a more humorous note, a few moments later he gave a massive yawn, exposing some terrifying teeth!
